This post is disruptive, hurtful, rude, insensitive, over-the-top, or otherwise inappropriate. (See Community Standards.)


This OP is right wing doomsday drivel from right wing sources or as stated in the TOS "disruptive content". This is not the time. Please Hide.


A randomly-selected Jury of DU members completed their review of this alert at Tue Oct 30, 2012, 10:33 AM, and voted 4-2 to HIDE IT.

Juror #1 voted to HIDE IT and said: No explanation given
Juror #2 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE and said: How about some rebuttal, and not just "Doomsday drivel" comment?
Juror #3 voted to HIDE IT and said: No explanation given
Juror #4 voted to HIDE IT and said: Given the sources used, I vote to hide. NCPA seems like an anti-govt right-wing source. While I think there is a benefit to leaving this sort of tripe to be exposed through debate, I will vote to hide this because it is such misleading crap.
Juror #5 voted to HIDE IT and said: No explanation given
Juror #6 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE and said: You don't like it argue why not. Read up with Krugman, Robert Reich, Stiglitz or other economists to provide another point of view.

"In the end, more than they wanted freedom, they wanted security. They wanted a comfortable life, and they lost it all -- security, comfort, and freedom. When ... the freedom they wished for was freedom from responsibility, then Athens ceased to be free."

maybe it was the comment about the catholic church---

the vatican doesn't like being exposed.

Christians should not be warmongers! http://www.lewrockwell.com/vance/vance87.html

+1, Ian, I saw the charts, educational & indicative, thanks.

There is a differences between Rome and U$A.

* Rome did not have such huge & productive colonies, like Japan, China, Arabia, Kuwait & others, who accept worth-less digital numbers & paper chits in exchange for valuable goods & services. Thru acceptance they are lending it 'value', or giving it worth.

* Rome was not as wasteful as the USA. The usa is like a huge pyramid, the furnace with fire in the middle, that is consuming, burning & blowing away the energy & resources of the world, the entire Earth.

U$A =(Usurious $ionist Agency) holds a big stick on which the snake has curled up, and that is the symbol of the $. It delivers a fearsome threat, = "submit, or be knocked out", e.g. sad'dam, kaddafi, etc.
